Various Ships - Unique wood egg w/ ship models inside from 1946 Bremer Vulcan Shipyard

Product Description
Bremen Vulkan Shipyard - A unique souvenir - a large wood Easter egg from 1946 that opens to show two wooden ship models.

The egg measures 13" long by 8.5" high. Written on top is "Frohliche Ostern 1946, Bremer Vulkan, Bremen-Vegesack." In English the greeting is "Happy Easter 1946" along with the shipyard name, Bremer-Vulcan, and its location in the Wesser River town of Bremen-Vegesack. Inside are a 10" model with a mast that looks like a patrol boat and a 6" model that is reminiscent of a submarine. Two bollards act as handles for lifting the section up.

The craftsmanship is excellent with the egg shaped out of ten sections of wood. The writing is carefully hand-painted with the greeting and year in gold.

Bremer Vulcan Shipyard was heavily damaged by Allied bombing during the war. The Allies did not allow shipbuilding to start at the yard until 1949. So what is the meaning of this wooden Easter egg - perhaps signifying the resurrection of the shipyard? Are the models inside military craft (Bremer Vulcan built U-boats during the war) or prototypes of hopeful future work?

Whatever the answer, this wooden Easter egg is a unique and rare souvenir.

Very good condition with a few nicks and a crack in the wood on one end.
